@neolithicx That was quick, seriously almost at the same time we posted.

Thanks.

I did a search and the last question to show up was 5 months ago.
At least I am not alone with this.

Thanks for the quick replies.

I just voted on the #2 Popular item - meritline.

Is this still a problem for anyone?

@jumbowoot: I think that there are people still having this problem, yes, since (as I'd just pointed out) @ohcheri just made a comment, and it had zero woots.

@jumbowoot: Back from an early lunch and things looks fine again. Thanks for the assistance in getting this taken care of!

@jumbowoot: looks like I am experiencing the issue of not being able to vote on deals again. Logged out and into the site, tried a different browser, tried on my playbook and all are blocking this functionality. Here is the message I receive:

Sorry
This is only for people who have bought woots
We restrict voting to users who have purchased something from one of the other Woot stores. It's not just because we want your money (which we do) - it's the best way to be sure all the votes are coming from real people and not spam-bots or phony accounts. The best way we can think of, anyway. For now.
You can always get voting rights by buying something from one of Woot's other sites:
woot.com
wine.woot.com
shirt.woot.com
sellout.woot.com
kids.woot.com
Purchases through Deals.Woot don't count, because in that case you're not buying anything from us. And we don't have your account information for those purchases....
